I have been working at JDSU

Pros

JDSU continues to be a leader in the industry and continues to grow. I feel that career opportunities are available for employees who work hard and show interest in moving forward and up in the organization. People are treated fairly and with respect... One of the reasons I love working for JDSU is the flexibility with work and life balance. I've always felt comfortable and not worried when I need to take personal time off for doctors appointments, vacation, etc... There is trust in me that I will get my job done - which makes me trust in my management team.

Cons

I really can't think of any true "downsides" of working at JDSU. Perhaps the one thing I can think of is constant change... but that depends on how well you embrace change. I personally would feel bored if things stayed status quo and can count on a new challenge everyday. If you do not like change - this is not the company for you.

    Pros

    The Indianapolis location has a strong corporate culture and encourages the free exchange of ideas. Benefits are generally good and overtime is not too frequent. This particular location is small enough that you can easily interact with other divisions and groups but large enough that you don't have to juggle multiple roles. The ability to get out of the office and actually visit the customers both nationally and internationally turns out to be a nice perk. Increasing your personal skill set through expos, conferences and courses is strongly encouraged.

    Cons

    Pay scale, while appropriate for the area, is lower than what you might find nationally. Benefits could be slightly better, particularly when it comes to vacation/sick leave. Sometimes hard to pull in fresh faces in the midwest. Always under scrutiny from the investors so budgets get tight at times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    This company has done a great job of turning itself around. Continue to fund and foster innovation throughout the divisions to keep things going well.

    Overworked, but flexible

    I worked at JDSU

    Pros

    The best reason to work at JSDU was the flexibility to make my own hours, and leave work whenever and whyever I needed to. No one clocked me in or out, and as long as I got my work done, no one minded what I was up to.

    Cons

    The main downside is directly related to the upside - although I could work whenever I wanted to, I was so overloaded that I had to work all the time. I covered a territory well beyond my abilities, experience, or training, and that was the norm.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    I suggest considering the work loads of your salespeople before doing more 'reductions in force' or 'streamlining'. A company can only work so lean. Bring back the support staff, reduce the complexity of the compensation model, and let your salespeople do what it does best - SELL.
